5. Mr. WEST RUSSELL
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether a new cross-river communication between North and South Shields forms part of the Government's proposals to deal with unemployment 192 on Tyneside; and, if so, whether he can indicate the stage the proposal has reached?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
I have been asked to reply. My attention has been called in general terms to the need for improved communications across the lower Tyne. I understand that the matter is now under consideration by the North and South Tyneside Joint Town Planning Committee, but no definite proposals have reached me.
§ Mr. MORRISON
If the county borough is not represented on the Joint Town Planning Committer. I shall be happy to consider any representations that they may care to make.
